Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you’ll know that there have been some vital discussions about the world’s climate issues in Paris.
The summit at COP21 has thrown the planet’s issues into the spotlight once again.
While there are still plenty of people who don’t seem to want to save our world – and those who point blank deny there are even issues with global warming and the use of resources, one man has had his say.
Arnold Schwarzenegger posted on Facebook ahead of the meetings, and told the 24$ of Brits and 32% of Americans who disagree with science a thing or two.
Arnie had this to say:
First – do you believe it is acceptable that 7 million people die every year from pollution? That’s more than murders, suicides, and car accidents – combined.
Every day, 19,000 people die from pollution from fossil fuels. Do you accept those deaths? Do you accept that children all over the world have to grow up breathing with inhalers?
Now, my second question: do you believe coal and oil will be the fuels of the future?
Besides the fact that fossil fuels destroy our lungs, everyone agrees that eventually they will run out. What’s your plan then?
I have a final question, and it will take some imagination. There are two doors. Behind Door Number One is a completely sealed room, with a regular, gasoline-fueled car. Behind Door Number Two is an identical, completely sealed room, with an electric car.
Both engines are running full blast.
I want you to pick a door to open, and enter the room and shut the door behind you. You have to stay in the room you choose for one hour. You cannot turn off the engine. You do not get a gas mask.
I’m guessing you chose the Door Number Two, with the electric car, right? Door number one is a fatal choice – who would ever want to breathe those fumes?
This is the choice the world is making right now.
Couldn’t have put it better.
